Tourism East Clare are delighted to announce that the second phase of the further development of www.visiteastclare.ie went live last Friday, 20th July 2018.

 An open website launch was held at the Scariff Council Offices to display, explain and promote the site, and was supported by several members with Cllr Pat Burke, Chairperson, Killaloe Municipal District, Mike Jones, Flow Marketing and Consulting, Eoin O’Hagan, Chairperson, Clare Tourism Steering Group, and Timmy Dooley TD, Spokesperson on Communications, The Environment & Natural Resources, Fianna Fáil, all speaking. The event was recorded by Jim Collins, Scariff Bay Community Radio.

Christine O’Brien, Secretary, Tourism East Clare Committee acknowledged and thanked all the speakers for their support, and in addition mentioned the Clare Local Development Company for their continued support of our organisation, in particular Agnes O’Shaughnessy. Also the media; The Clare Champion, The Clare People, Clare FM and Scariff Bay Radio for helping us to get our message out there. Also, the staff at the Scariff Tourist Office in Market House, especially Eugene O’Brien. The tourist office located in the heart of Scariff is a valuable resource for the region.

It is important to know that the website is not simply an online tourism magazine – the advertisements, blogs, special events and Live Music items and pages are driven by a custom-built dynamic database created by Mark O’Leary, Irish HQ in development with Tourism East Clare.

As a member of Tourism East Clare, you will be getting much more than a business ad; members are able to list events associated with their business and the option to boost this to a featured event on the home page. Dependent upon the business type you have, your ad can be shown on multiple pages according to the categories; e.g. food and drink, accommodation, live music, activities and attractions, transport; to name but a few. Members can also have any good news stories appear on our homepage for a very reasonable fee.
